Nehalel Shabbat Siddur | Review, Sale & Giveaway

Nehalel Be Shabbat

If you don’t have the Nevarech benscher, you’ve certainly seen it on a friend’s Shabbat table. You may not know it by name, but you know the one I mean. The one with all those gorgeous pictures?

The publishers of that ever-popular benscher have recently released their newest creation — a similarly styled Shabbat siddur called Nehalel Be Shabbat.

When the publishers sent me an advance copy for review, my husband immediately scooped it up and “offered” to do the review. (In which “offered” equals stated as unequivocal fact.)


So, without further adieu, here’s what my husband had to say:

This new siddur is fantastic. The pictures are beautiful and very inspiring. I actually like this far more than the benscher, which my wife always liked, but I found a bit over the top.

I really recommend reading the essays at the beginning of the siddur; I got a lot out of them. They helped to set the framework for using this siddur as part of your Shabbat davening.

The publishers obviously put a lot of thought into how to gain inspiration and connection in your davening; they recommend using the pictures as a guide to help you reach that — but caution that they are a means to an end, not an end to themselves.

I have discovered, after using the siddur for a couple of months, that it’s really best to use it occasionally – as a way to keep your davening fresh.

My only critique is that it doesn’t fit comfortably in my tallit bag and it’s a bit heavy – but those things aren’t a major deal-breaker, especially for all the plusses of this siddur.

I look forward to seeing what product they come out with next!


As you can tell, the siddur was a resounding hit with my husband. And I can see it being a great addition to just about any family’s home. Think: Yom tov host or hostess gift!

It would also make a wonderful present for a Bar or Bat Mitzvah, or a child heading off to Israel for the year (or college).  Even for younger children, it’s a great gift. I know my “visual learner” loves snuggling up next to daddy for davening when he’s using this siddur.

Because I just knew you’d love it, I’ve partnered up with the fine people at Nehalel to offer an exclusive sale for KOAB readers:

  8. I would love to get this siddur!
    I remember when I was younger my siblings used to always fight who gets to use the bencher- I always let them use it.
    And one of my family members recently got ill and if there was something to help me boost up my kavana it would be great!

    I would love some inspiration for davening these days. I am so busy with my family, baruch Hashem, but it leaves little time for more than a half asleep recitation of birchas hashachar…

    I would like this siddur since I think it may give me inspiration into my davening. Since I had my kids, davening has fell to the way side pretty much and this looks beautiful.
